Federal 100 winner: Jonathan Kagan

Jonathan Kagan

Deputy Director for Program Development at the Division of AIDS

National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

Kagan spearheaded the development of a system that enables AIDS researchers to manage and exchange information about HIV clinical trials.

The Division of AIDS' Enterprise System provides a set of tools and standards for researchers at the agency and partner institutions. It includes a comprehensive database on clinical trials, a registry of researchers and institutions, and an online system for reporting and analyzing incidents of adverse reactions.

"As a result [of Kagan’s efforts], we now have standards-based information tools, built on and accessed through a common framework, that enable us to broadly share and utilize the information necessary to ensure the safe and effective management of a collection of large and complex clinical trial networks working to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Margaret Johnston, director of the Vaccine Research Program in the Division of AIDS.
